Papertrey September Blog Hop Challenge


The theme this month was about wrapping and packaging, working with fabric or felt. I've actually admired several very cute felt cell-phone pockets on Etsy over the past year or so. I thought I would try my hand at one for this challenge.  I didn't have a template or any formal stitching instruction. So please don't laugh at my needlework - this is what you get when your first blanket stitch lesson comes from a You Tube video - Lol!  BTW - Wouldn't this be cute using the telephone die from Heart-2-Heart #4 ?!!




Cream felt is from PTI. I used Edgers #3 die on the folded edge, the house die from Love Lives Here and the birds from Little Bitty Birds.
